Madam Secretary Season 3 Finale: A Battle for Loyalty and the Future of NATO

Madam Secretary

“An attack against one is considered an attack against all.”. Elizabeth tries to convince the French to help against Russia’s threat to invade Bulgaria in this third season finale of Madam Secretary. She also finds out something about Mike B. that makes her question his loyalty.

As a seasoned writer and a passionate fan of the cinematic universe, I couldn’t help but feel a deep sense of empathy for Elizabeth in this gripping season finale. Despite her best efforts to unite everyone against a common threat, France shockingly withdraws from the Atlantic Council. The reason? The French president has been accepting bribes from Russia to secure his position and allow Russia to dismantle NATO, paving the way for invasion. It’s a stark reminder that money can corrupt even the highest echelons of power.

Henry’s New Role and the Fight for World Peace

Meanwhile, Henry lands a new job at the CIA, heading the Special Activities Division (SAD). It’s amazing what having the POTUS as a friend can do for one’s career. Henry teams up with Dimitri to investigate the Russian situation, leading to the discovery of a missing name in the matrix – Oleg, Russia’s go-to guy for moving money. This revelation ultimately exposes President Perrin’s corruption, forcing his resignation. However, his successor remains reluctant to send troops to counter the Russian incursion. It begs the question: why is world peace so undervalued? Are some leaders simply power-hungry, seeking control until there’s nothing left to dominate?

Mike B.’s Loyalty and the Complexities of Workplace Relationships

In a surprising twist, Nadine discovers that Mike B. has been working with a woman he met three months prior, as part of a plot to bring down NATO and the European Union. When confronted by Elizabeth, Mike B. vehemently denies any betrayal, claiming he quit months ago upon learning of his former employers’ intentions to destroy NATO. The dynamic between Elizabeth and Mike B. is fascinating – their deep understanding of each other could easily form the basis of a strong friendship.

Daisy, on the other hand, learns that Nadine has been seeing Mike B. on and off. While it’s heartening to see Nadine find happiness, her desire to keep the relationship secret seems somewhat harsh. However, it’s understandable – workplace romances rarely end well, unless you’re a couple on a TV drama, of course.

Invoking Article 5 and the Importance of Unity

In a powerful moment, Elizabeth invokes Article 5 towards the end of the episode. Reading a postcard from her late uncle who died in the war, she urges the remaining NATO representatives to stand on the right side of history. As the finale draws to a close, Elizabeth and Henry head to a cabin for a romantic getaway, only to find their children waiting inside, much to Elizabeth’s delight.

On a side note, Henry’s observation about young people being both socially engaged and addicted to technology rings true. In today’s world, social media dominates our lives, and we often feel lost without our devices. Additionally, the French representative’s comment about the United States being impatient with diplomacy and quick to war is a thought-provoking statement, especially considering recent global events.
